KBS Knee-Brace Stabilizer
The KBS1Z knee-brace stabilizer makes a structural connection between knee bracing and columns or beams to help stabilize free-standing structures and comply with many prescriptive deck bracing requirements such as AWC’s DCA6 Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide. Factory-formed at a 45° angle and easily installed with nails, the KBS1Z braces 2x, 4x and 6x in line post-to-beam configurations. Check with your local building department for deck bracing requirements.
